September 4th was Protect Your Groundwater Day. Which spurs the thought, as a professional working with water monitoring what do you do to communicate the importance of water to business/industry, policy makers, and/or public? We talk about the importance of water quantity and quality among colleges and those in the industry but are we reaching out to the people who are making decisions that impact water quality and quantity. We have valuable knowledge and information regarding Indiana’s water resources and have the ability to have a positive impact on the future of water quality in Indiana if we apply what we know.
Yesterday was annual World Water Day, and the Indiana Water Monitoring Council (InWMC) would like to highlight some of the great things the council has been doing to promote the protection of Indiana’s water that are in line with this year’s theme of using nature-based solutions to solve our water challenges.
